Many of the students were very excited and impressed with the calculators.  “The presentation was actually interesting. I loved learning about things the new calculators can do,” said Caroline DePhillips.

Students are not required to purchase a calculator for math class as calculators are available in the classroom.

Students who plan to enroll in college after high school may want to consider purchasing a graphing calculator now so there is an opportunity to learn how to use it. The TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator costs approximately $80.
